Paul Cézanne’s “Nature morte de Pêches et poires” is an epitome of his profound influence on the art world, embodying a pivotal period in his career where he aspired to bring a new objectivity to painting. This artwork, meticulously crafted between 1885 and 1887, represents Cézanne’s innate ability to breathe life into still life paintings, making them vibrant and dynamic1.
In October 2018, John Davies Framing had the privilege to frame this masterpiece, choosing the Cezanne Cassetta frame with a 1 cm beige canvas slip. The frame, carved from lime wood on a pine base, is gessoed and gilded with 23.4 carat gold leaf with an 11 cm profile width. This framing not only encapsulates the artwork but enhances its essence, rendering a complete visual delight.
